Grand Prix De Bruxelles This Formula II (not "B" as some would have it) race was a battle between the G.P.-type Ferraris with the sports V12 2-litre engines installed, the 1,430-c.c. Simcas, the 2-litre Veritas cars and O. Moore's O.B.M. Moore made the fastest practice lap in the first session, in heavy rain, but retired in the race itself. The G.P. Ferrari chassis is apparently better suited to...

We Hear A Chiswick garage is using a 1926 7.5 Citroen for driving lessons and towing jobs. R. S. Shapley has disposed of his Type 35C Bugatti and now owns an 8th Series open Lancia "Lambda" and an R-type M.G. Lieut. Cameron acquired Boddy's Lancia "Lambda." Alas, John Gordon's G.N. chassis went for scrap while he was in Italy — this, too, like the G.N. which Boddy found, was stored in a Leeds...

The Mud-Plugger

Sydney Herbert Allard was born in Streatham in 1910, the son of a builder and developer. There were five Allard offspring in all. The eldest, Jack, was followed by Sydney, then by twins Leslie and Dennis and finally by Mary. The boys were all educated at Ardingly College, and wasted no time in developing a healthy interest in cars and motorcycles, perhaps to the detriment of their commitment to...

We Hear In a dry barn in Wales, R. L. Simms has unearthed a well-preserved side-by side two-seater, V-twin two-stroke Carden cyclecar. Last registered in 1924, there was still oil in the engine, which had good compression — the new owner is now grappling with timing the ML magneto to suit the engine. In the same loft which had sheltered this cyclecar are a number of early motor-cycles. Then...

British High-Performance Cars for 1947

Never before has the British Motor Industry been more deserving of publicity. By its contribution to the war effort it most certainly ensured our present Freedom, and the Peace which politicians are making so precarious and comfortless. Nevertheless, seldom has a nation looked more successfully to its export market so soon after the termination of war. And never before has the British Motor...

Review of British Sports Cars

Sir, Further to your review of Gregor Grant's book on British Sports Cars, we feel that we must point out some serious errors in describing the Allard. In the first place, we do not use Girling but Lockheed brakes ; the clutch is the standard Ford centrifugally-loaded type and not Borg and Beck, as stated. Mr. Godfrey Imhof, whilst giving us valuable assistance on many problems regarding...

N.W. London M.C. Lawrence Cup Trial Those who expected this oft-postponed event to flop because of summer conditions got the surprise of their lives at Bagshot Heath on the day selected. Torrential rain fell much of the time and between sections Potter's passenger wisely erected her umbrella above the AlIard. Red Roads wasn't too difficult, but failed some of the smaller cars. Len Parker used the...
